It is with great sadness that we must tell you Lance LeGault passed away the afternoon of Monday, September 10. Lance's daughter, Mary, told Carole Drexler he passed very peacefully, his heart just gave up. The family will be making funeral arrangements on Wed. (9/12) and this information will be added to this page when I have it. Lance truly enjoyed being with fans & he appreciated their loyalty.

Lance was a larger than life personality & he will be greatly missed. Lance LeGault (born William Lance Legault on May 2, 1935 – September 10, 2012), sometimes credited as W. L. LeGault, was an American film and television actor, best known as Colonel Roderick Decker in the 1980s American television series The A-Team.

Lance's first three feature films he starred in were the three Elvis Presley movies, Girls! Girls! Girls! (1962) in which he was a stunt double for Elvis Presley, Kissin' Cousins (1964), and Viva Las Vegas (1964). He also appeared in Roustabout and Elvis Presley's groundbreaking 1968 NBC television special Elvis (also known as Elvis' 68 Comeback Special), where he sat at the side of the stage playing a tambourine.

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD + 16 page booklet.

Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever.

This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.

The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
